Do you have a junk car just sitting there, in your driveway or in your garage, doing nothing more than taking up space?

You might say that it’s valuable, and you have some ideas on how to get the most value out of it. If the car has been broken or damaged, perhaps you’re trying to save money to fix it up and put it back on the road. But you never seem to have the money or the time to find the parts and do the work.

Another alternative is to sell your junk car for parts. The challenge you’ll face here is finding the right buyers. Selling a car for parts and the scrap value of the metal is no easy task. You have to take the car apart, drain and safely dispose of fluids, separate and take inventory of the parts, and assess the quality of the parts. Then you still have to spend hours on the phone pitching your scrap parts to junk yard and auto recyclers or posting multiple classified ads, only to spend weeks getting the runaround and no firm estimate on the value of your parts and no interested buyers.

You could also end up spending money towing your car from one auto salvage yard in Arlington Heights to another only to find that you can’t get a fair price for both the metal and the parts.

You could try selling your junk car on Craigslist or eBay, which could turn you into a mini car dealership. You’ll find yourself waiting days or weeks for someone to respond to your ad. Then they’ll want to see it and test drive it, if you advertise that it is running. Then there’s price negotiations. A potential buyer might ask you to fix the car or reduce your price. Even if you do, they’ll want to think about it and get back to you.

Suddenly, you’ll realize that weeks and months have gone by and it’s still sitting there. In fact, you may have had a goal to sell that old car in a few days, and a year later it’s still sitting there.

So, what else can you do?

Stop giving yourself the runaround. Contact The Clunker Junker and get an instant offer for your vehicle today. We buy junk cars in Arlington Heights, IL. We’ll pick it up fast and pay cash for your car right on the spot. Easy!

How much is my car worth in Arlington Heights?

The current average value for vehicles in Arlington Heights, Illinois is $341 with haul away at no cost. If you have a big pickup like a Dodge Ram or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is a bit more at $426, but could be $289 for smaller and mid-size vehicles like a Honda Accord. Obviously, your vehicle's exact value depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell the vehicle at auction, it's worth more than metal values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Scrap pricing is often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Has the vehicle been in a accident? Vehicles with good parts are often worth more .

Do you buy junk cars in Arlington Heights, IL without a title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Arlington Heights, IL with no title. In all cases you will need to be able to prove you own the vehicle. That is usually done by showing a photo ID matching a valid registration for the vehicle. In some cases additional paperwork is also needed. Contact us if you have any questions about what is needed to sell your car with no title in Illinois. Note that we can never buy abandoned vehicles under any circumstance.

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Arlington Heights, IL DMV as seen below. Most states require a small fee for replacement and turnaround time can be anywhere from instantly to a couple of weeks:

Will you pick up my car on the same day?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Arlington Heights within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier handles all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup time on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the policies of the buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid via check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

  • Craig's 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse
    1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

    "Was my daily driver until last week. Upper control arm on right front tire broke. Auto shop suggested not repairing due to rust on shock tower. Tires are good, I don't think the air conditioning works. Plastic trim panels are broken off on right side and windshield has some small cracks in the bottom."

  • Rama Jean's 2001 Pontiac Grand Am
    2001 Pontiac Grand Am

    "The reason I'm wanting to junk this vehicle is because it needs a new transmission and I don't know how to do that. I also bought a new car, so I have no time to fix it. It's just sitting outside my home and wanting to junk it for whatever cash offer I can get for it."

  • Maria's 2000 Honda Odyssey
    2000 Honda Odyssey

    "Transmission is going out in it. It drives slow, like up to 45mph. Also, I think I left the lights on and the battery died but it's a new one, only about three months old."

  • Paul's 1998 Chevrolet 1500
    1998 Chevrolet 1500

    "It has a rebuilt engine in it with approximately 20K miles on it. 4×4 that works. The only reason the engine does not run is, I believe, there is an electrical issue in the dash. Diamond stamped tough box and Tounnou cover. "

  • Angela's 2009 Mazda 3
    2009 Mazda 3

    "The horn does not work and it needs a new ABS monitor. The anti-lock brake system works fine, the light for it just won't come on. It does have a salvaged title but runs perfectly fine."

  • Daryel's 1999 Chevrolet S-10
    1999 Chevrolet S-10
